Have you always been a reader? Have you ever fancied having a go at writing creatively but haven’t yet devoted time to it? Perhaps you are an experienced writer looking for a new form to explore or need some good old-fashioned inspiration.
Becky Cherriman curates a series of creative writing workshops, which will run on the third Saturday of every month at The Leeds Library. Each workshop will deal with a particular aspect or genre of writing. Guided by established writers, you will draw inspiration from the library’s collections to write and then receive feedback on your work in this stimulating environment. Workshops will draw on Dewey Decimal themes such as Contemporary Fiction, Home and Family Management, Biography, Sociology and Anthropology, Philosophy and the Theory of Religion.
The rest of the workshop programme is as follows and all have waitlists so please sign up to the waitlists if you want to attend as we will be running a second workshop on the day :
27th April: Emma Adams– script-writing for the stage
18th May: Sai Murray – writing the political (any form or genre)
